Small Space Decoration – Inspiring Features

It’s difficult enough to come up with a perfect plan when decorating a home that’s not tiny so things only get more difficult as the space gets smaller. However, having a small home is not the end of the world and shouldn’t be dramatized. You just have to know how to use the space and how to make the most of what you have, like with this 29 square meter apartment.

A bright interior

Having large windows that let in lots of natural light definitely helps so don’t obstruct them. In addition to that, use light colors to emphasize the spaciousness of the home. It doesn’t have to be white as long as it creates this impression. This apartment has walls painted in a warm shade of grey for example.

It’s important to keep things simple and to avoid overdecorating. Don’t cover the walls with lots of framed photos, paintings or posters. Pick one or two that you really like and make them stand out. Simplicity also has to do with the colors, materials and finishes used throughout. It doesn’t have to be a linear design so contrasts are welcomed but the overall look should be cohesive.

An organized kitchen

One of the most difficult things to achieve in a small home is having an organized kitchen which doesn’t influence the rest of the décor in a bad way. This means finding clever storage solutions and working with open shelves because they’re usually wonderful at maintaining an airy look.

An intuitive layout

Since the floor space is reduced, the layout has to be just right. This means finding ways to delimitate the areas without obstructing the spaces. For example, the sleeping area can sit on an elevated platform and this way it will feel private and cozy without the need of curtains or room dividers.
